We are especially honored to have as our guest preacher today, the Rev. Dr. Nancy Claire Pittman, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean, Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
We welcome you to this week's worship at DisciplesNet Church, an online church with walls as wide as the world, doors that are always open, and always room at the table.
This week's worship includes 32 minutes of sing-along favorites, scripture, prayer, message, and communion.
If you would like to share in communion physically, please make ready a piece of bread or similar food and some type of drink (we use grape juice, but other liquids including wine and water will work). These represent the broken body and the blood of Jesus Christ given on our behalf.
